Reviews

The art of romance might be a tricky thing to master but one author has at least been trying to get a grasp on what constitutes good romantic art. Artists & Illustrators A lovely hardbound collection that shines a light on the tradition of the artist and his muse. Cotswold Life A book that will leave you wondering anew what the Mona Lisa is really smiling about... The Dubliner The universal subject of love which informs so many works of art, literature and music, touches us all and nowhere more than in these pictures is it brought into such sharp focus. Manchester Evening News A collection of exquisite portraits which explore, describe and capture the complex quintessence of love through paint ad photography. As artists including Goya, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Schiele, Freida Kahlo and David Hockney immortalise their mistresses, muses, spouses and objects of obsession, so their emotions are expressed in a language beyond words. Easy Living What a delightful book. Yorkshire Gazette This beautifully produced, yet elegantly slim, volume proves you can introduce art to people without manufacturing something the size of the proverbial cofee-table book. Good Book Guide
